The written word has power over the mind whether it be a fictitious tale of adventure within an expansive fantastic world of unique creatures, or more realistic works with characters people can relate with, stories can have impact the reader’s state of mind and how they view the world. All stories have power! Reading has always been my escape from a world I never understood. I’d like to give that same experience to other readers.
One way to aspire to writing is to do what I already enjoy doing. Writing stories is something I often do for fun. Before any story can be written it must be imagined, created by reshaping the world around us into the world within the mind. Within our minds is where we have the power to shape and mold them, even until they are unrecognizable from what had been its seeds. It grows within a deep soil of imagination, and blooms something unique for each individual. Whether it inspires others to their own creations, or give a new perspective to the realities around them, I’d enjoy the opportunity to give this to others.
I’ve only to gain in the necessary experience in submitting these stories to publishing and publishing contests to reach this goal. Reshaped these stories into something that can be sold more easily to the avid reader, and profited from. After years of rejection and repeated efforts, may someday grow into something that can support a modest lifestyle without struggling to pay bills.
